'Powiedzmy' is a unit of language that differs from the imperative form (powiedzmy=let's tell) of identical shape. Out of two forms of 'powiedzmy' in: 'O nagrodzie powiedzmy mu od razu, powiedzmy, przed zebraniem' (Let's tell him immediately about the reward, let's say, before the meeting), The authoress is only interested in the second, parenthetical 'powiedzmy', preceeded and followed by a comma. It is the parenthetical function of 'powiedzmy' that is the major concern of the present paper, which focuses mainly on semantic and pragmatic problems. The expression 'powiedzmy', which has been selected out of other units of identical form or units constituted by 'powiedzmy', is being examined in detail from the semantic point of view, in order to answer the question stated in the title of this article. As the result of the analysis concerning the meaning of 'powiedzmy', the authoress presents a preliminary explication of this expression.
